The wayward wind is a restless wind, a restless wind that yearns to wander... I always found that old song to be intriguing. The words, anyway.
We're in a whirlwind of wayward winds at the shop. I'm chomping at the bits to begin holiday decorating. No, I'm not a fan of Halloween, really. As a shop owner for the past twenty years, I prefer skipping it, and moving right into Christmas!
I finished the making of the final two hundred bars of Christmas Soap, and yesterday, Friday the 13th, gave out twenty free Marshmallow Lip Balms at the shop in celebration of the manufacturing feat. Things won't slow down, but it feels good to know I've completed the first round.
Into... Fur rugs, deer antlers, and natural everlasting flowers. Always been into everlasting flowers, but it looks snazzy when you incorporate the dried flowers into the fur, and antlers.
Most often when I launch something new, I test the waters first. Meaning, I make a few and then merchandise the new item's, and see how many are sold, or the comments that roll. The Alice Bracelets are flying out the door! You know the story. Makes me feel happy. A few other new ideas up my sleeve.
We put in our order for holiday wrapping paper. Can't wait to begin wrapping The Twelve Days of Christmas! Beautiful inside, and out.
Oh, and I picked up a snowberry bush at our local home improvement store. That's a picture of the berries when they're fresh, above.
Keep the faith.
